To read a Twig template file, you'll need to recognize Twig's syntax delimiters. Twig has three syntax delimiters: one for printing out variables, another for performing actions or logic, and lastly, one for comments, also used for docblocks.

In this tutorial we'll:

  • Explore each of Twig's 3 syntax delimiters.
  • Show examples of each from Drupal's core template files.

By the end of this tutorial you should be able to recognize each of Twig's syntax delimiters and understand what the engine will do when it encounters them.
